It has never happened do not know what to write in the blog? Sometimes it is difficult, right? It is difficult to choose a topic to share with everyone, because, somehow, you are doing public personal information and does not have to be available to anyone who wants to read it.
If we make calculations, there are not many topics to talk about. For example, you can not talk about anything that harms anyone in around you, neither  can discuss recent films or books that your friends want to watch or read because you are not going to do spoiler because they can be angry with you or stop reading your blog ...
From my point of view, talk about topics that suggests Reme is fine if you can not think of anything to write about, but also consider that this topics are difficult because it can be approached from many perspectives: to have weapons at home? Education system? It is hard being for or against, each topic has its advantages and disadvantages and, of course, each person has a different point of view. Furthermore, you can not comment on a topic that you have no information. the best person who could talk about the positive factors of have guns at home would be someone who has been docked at home and has survived thanks to point to the thief with a gun. And education system? We are students, we are still led by the system, I think that anyone who has just finished his second degree, a master and even a PhD and still no work unless you leave the country can comment better.
In short, I am perhaps the only one who has trouble choosing a topic to write here and why I have accumulated so many posts for last, but I will find topics or experiences enough to write the necessary posts for make Reme happier. ;-)


There are many different types of families, many relatives, few, united, fought, young, old... Each family is unique, neither better nor worse. For example, my family is very particular, my father's sisters prefer to be with their families and with my grandmother, leaving us behind. While on the side of my mother, I have only one uncle, who loves to spend his holidays with his sister (my mother) and his only niece (me).
The fact that we are less does not make it worse, because at least, we know when we get together is because we really want and not by obligation. Perhaps I would have liked to have little children in my family and not be constantly surrounded by adults, but if you are all adults there is less noise.
On the other way, to have a small family becomes more difficult your social life with friends on holidays like Christmas, because you feel sorry for leave your family alone, or you take them with you, so in the end, you choose to stay at home with your family, and as you are the only "small", adults marginalize you a bit, with what eventually you run out of hanging out with your friends, away from your family and writing post for Prácticas de Redacción.
In conclusion, your family always will give their support in the sad moments and celebrates your victories with you, so as nothing lasts forever, try to enjoy your family while you can!

Unity and Coherence: Positive thinking.

Positive thinking always helps people to feel better. If you think positively, you will find the solution to your problems easier, not only you'll feel better, also the people around you will be infected by your positivity and feel better about themselves.
It is not always easy to find the bright side of things happening around us. For example, I try to see the positive side of things since I was 10, I admit that the beginning is very difficult, disappointments, failures ... they affect our personality, but it depends on us how to face them.
Other factors that benefit us or hurt us to maintain a positive thinking are each of the people around us, who share with us our daily lives, our experiences. Within the family environment is very important that at least one of your close relatives (father, mother, brother, sister ...) helps you up when you stumble, to support your decisions because they are yours and you deserve a chance ...
In my case, my greatest source of support has been my father. When I was 10, in 2006, my father started to teach me to see the positive side of things, to respect the decisions of others, to help people control their mood, and not lose my temper, always keeping calm. At first it was hard, I do not understand why I had to find a good side when the bad side was the one who looked more easily, but I gradually changing, until my radical change was forced a few days before my 15 birthday. My father had surgery, and my mother (who is a very emotional person), was very overwhelmed, and my father was unable to offer encouragement, so I was the one who had to stay calm in moments of tension. After a month, my father recovered, and from that moment, my father and I got along much better. From there, my worldview changed for the better. That doesn't mean that the world is better, but you strive more to see his good part than his bad part.
In the other way, everyone is at some point situations who can't control their feelings, emotions overwhelm him and not take it anymore. That's understandable, we are not robots, nothing happens if we allow ourselves by stress, frustration or sadness on some occasion, but, as a very famous phrase says: "Falling is allowed, but up is mandatory".
Life will put you tests, and you are who decides how to deal with, whether it will be with a fighting spirit with desire to excel, or surrendering to the first failure. Life, since I was 15 until today, has tested me several times, some more easily overcome than others, but even having lost hope, positive thinking has remained there, making me see that after each situation fronted (surpassed successfully or not) I've grown as a person, I've matured and my personality has become stronger, allowing me to help others and myself.
Ultimately, positive thinking will help you deal with everyday situations with more strength and courage. I recommend to everyone that the first thought that comes to your mind nothing more waking up in the morning will be: "Today can be a great day, I'll give it a chance". Because depressed is useless, what has to happen, it will happen, so ... Why don't wake up with a smile? You can!

Advantages and disadvantages of having brothers or sisters.

Having brothers or sisters can be a great advantage or a disadvantage depending on the relationship that exists between them. If brothers are friends, they can be better moral support than parents, and also if the age difference is not too much, they can also share friendships, hobbies or even partying together. But always keep in mind that the brothers relationship dependend heavily on the influence of parents. Parents should love their children as they are, if not, it is preferable that they have one child to avoid favoritism.
On the other hand, being an only child, like me, doesn't mean your parents consent you more or you get everything you want. If you have good parents, no matter how many children, they will always be well educated. Although, being an only child also has some advantages, for example, everything at home is for you, you don't have to give to little children your toys, books or anything else have a special value for you, because little children can break them. So if something breaks, you can not complain because it is your responsibility, whereas if, however, you want to keep something,it is preserved thanks to you.
In conclusion, having brothers or sisters, if you have good parents, is one of the best things that can happen to you, however, if parents have a predilection for one of their children, can be very negative for the other child, so before having children think: are you going to accept your children as they are or are you going to choose the best? It's your decision.

Ten Weeks Ago...

I remember ten weeks ago when my classmates and I had just started our lessons at the University, and some teachers asked us about our first day in La Merced, actually, we were very nervous and a little bit lost. It was just the beginning, but now, ten weeks later, after making a group for Lengua Castellana and be running another of Cultura Contemporánea, I can say that apart of studying a degree I like, I have met people with goals like me, in relation to English and many other aspects.
From my "landing" at the University, the second day in particular, I met Sara, who will not only become a great classmate, but one of the best people I know, and certainly, the most organized.
Shortly after, we had to make groups to work in Lengua Castellana, and there were Lorena and Eva, who were more predisposed to work with Sara and me in the group, with whom we had a blast and still finish the same job. And simultaneously the Lengua group, I met Pepa, by chance, at the train station, she was very confident and with a incredible vocabulary level of  English, and after Pepa I met Corpus and María.
And of course, what other factor makes you meet people? The class site, and we knew Pepa, Corpus and María, who were sat behind us, we were missing that were present, who would soon arise: Mari Angeles, Charo, Mari Carmen and ... The Blonde.
But that was not the end, a few days later I met my girls, who would be later the cornerstones of my Cultura group, my "Atacás" Carmen, Carmen María and Lidia, along with Sara made me unforgettable moments, laughter, anecdotes, italianisms, Charles Chaplin, rashid, al fracaso ... and much more.
I do not remember at what point between the group of Lengua and Cultura I also met José, classmate, trainmate and musician, like me. Having common interests makes you empathize more with people, and then friendship.
This weekend I've been with two classmates, one day we went to the cinema, next day we left for sightseeing, and Sunday, I realized that it is not necessary a special place to enjoy, but only a simple place with special people who make this place unforgettable for you.
In conclusion, I feel very lucky to have met all of  you and I hope you spend many more unforgettable moments together!

First Práctica Evaluable: Is playing an instrument a good idea or a waste of time?

All psychologists think that playing an instrument is fantastic for children. There are the "typical mums" that always want that her son or daughter plays an instrument; violin, piano, guitar... But then, when the child has grown up, the same mums that before said "Play an instrument... Is good for you... You will be more intelligent than other children if you play..." are those who now, when her child starts to go to high school, says "Dear, forget your music lessons, they are a waste of time, you must forget your instrument and you have to study maths or chemistry... It better for your future". But no, I have played flute since I was seven years old, and I love it. Perhaps for most of my classmates playing an instrument is a waste of time, but, there are people like me that love to play an instrument and want to be a profesional musician in the future. In conclusion, playing an instrument can be a waste of time for those who don't know, but it can be a great vocation for those who really enjoys playing an instrument.

Internet world vs world without internet.

The lives of people who have access to internet is often easier to find information, or talk to people who are far from us. This, for example, makes the distance less difficult, If it's only with messages or audios, you have Whatsapp, if you want something more visual, you have Skype, with which you can have eye contact with the other person, but internet access has not only positive factors, this connection also makes people more dependent on their service. Now it is strange to meet a person who doesn't have Facebook or email, but we have to learn to see beyond social networks, and realize that although social networks make us be closer to people who are far, also separate us from the people who surround us and makes us be less sociable. Moreover, life without the internet can make it hard to find time-tables or to find important information, but you can always turn to encyclopedias and dictionaries, and also, life without internet foments relationships between people, this makes to have a face to face dialogue is a way to enjoy the people you have around you. And of course, especially teenagers, if they had a life without WiFi or internet connection, they could use the lost hours refreshing Twitter, Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram ... meeting with her friend, going out or having a hobby that it could be useful to them or get they forget daily stress. But we must make one thing clear, both, world internet as a world without it, there must be a progressive adaptation, neither a person who has ever entered google can become a computer engineer in a month nor a engaged person with his mobile all time can stop in one day, everything needs time and patience.

Fact or opinion.

Opinion or fact? Sometimes differentiate these two words is easy, for example, dogs are better than cats. It is clear that dogs do not have to be better than cats, it is just my opinion, but in other situations it is more difficult to distinguish whether it is an objective or subjective fact. If we put as an example "English people take longer to learn languages​​", certainly not all English people can only speak English, but this topic is generally used because, English is the best known language, and English people have not need to learn other languages ​​by force, however, a large number of English speakers can speak other languages ​​normally and this "fact" does not affect them.

Describing Ian Somerhalder.

I admired Ian Somerhalder for his kind-hearted and for his role at "The Vampire Diaries". In addition, he is very handsom, this is the principal reason that he is an actor but also a model. He has an animal fundation called the ISF (Is not original, "Ian Somerhalder's Fundation") but he is very confident when he talks about his programme to give in adoption some pets. I like him because he always  tries to do better.

My favourite place.

My favourite place in the world is Winchester. Why? Because one of my friends told me that last year she has been in the month of July in Winchester and she loved it. Finally, she convinced me to go with her this summer. The month was about going to classes in the morning at the Winchester University, and in the afternoons, going to visit the most important places there. During the month, students would be living with English families. A difference of my friends who went to houses un pairs, my house was for a single student.That made me a little nervous, it was my first time abroad, alone and also I would have to spend weekends alone with them. When we arrive to Winchester, we were on a central point to go with our families. I know that I was lucky, my family was young, they were 32 and 34 years old and also they have three children, Bea (5 years old), Freddie (4) and Rupert (2). Emily, the wife, was very kind to me since the first moment, talking to me a bit slower the first days, and Toby, the husband, was awesome, his personality was very similar to my personality. Children were lovely and very polite. On the other hand, to know Winchester City, the lifestyle and all the landmarks shocked me, and I can't forget the days that we went to Southampton for go shopping or some Sundays in Portsmouth beaches. For me, Winchester the best place in the world, I left my English family there and all memories of July's days, but I have no doubt that next summer, I will go back to pick up old memories and I will create new ones with my English family.

Languages are very important in society. When you learn languages you can meet people because you can make yourself understood, and you can get to know other cultures that open your mind to accept other ways of living. On the other hand, if you are in the worst situation and you haven't got a job you can go to the other countries to work and you won't have any problem to talk to your boss, and it is sure your boss will hire you because you know more languages than the other employees, and you will be the most qualified.
